Siiri visiting the school healthcare service

Siiri, 16, visits the school healthcare service in relation to contraception and asthma.

Ninth-grader Siiri, 16, and Leo, who is in her parallel class, have been dating for six months. Siiri visits the school nurse to discuss contraception. 

The nurse has assessed that Siiri is capable of deciding for her contraception herself. Siiri can then choose whether the details concerning the appointment where contraception was discussed will be visible to her parents in My Kanta Pages. After giving it some thought, Siiri has come to the decision that she doesn’t want her parents to see the details.

Siiri suffers from asthma, for which she has medication. Despite this, she had an asthma attack during PE class. Due to the asthma attack, Siiri has an appointment with the school doctor and the situation calms down. The doctor assesses that also in this situation Siiri is capable of deciding on her care independently. 

Siiri can therefore decide whether the details are visible to her parents in My Kanta Pages. As her parents have always accompanied Siiri to follow-up appointments related to the treatment of asthma, Siiri decides that her parents can see the appointment data and the prescriptions for asthma medication renewed by the doctor.
